Ervin was at her home on the afternoon of Feb. 27 when Bell allegedly broke into the family home, stile items, including firearms, and abducted her, authorities said.

“Ellis Bell drove the victim to a remote location where he shot her and left her for dead,” Rutherford County Detective Sgt. Steve Craig said in a news release.

Family members reported her missing later that day. Her body was found six days later.

Bell was arrested on state and federal charges the same day and remains in federal custody at the Grayson County Detention Center.
